It All Started When The Lemon & The Blueberry Met For Coffee~

Of course, it was a match made in heaven. He he.

I chose a Lemon Blueberry Coffee Cake recipe for my Spring Recipe Card Swap.

My recipe cards~

Blueberry-2

I’m trying to use my extensive October Afternoon stash, so I ended up with two cards with small variations.

The white card~

Blueberry-Blue-2

I found a cute little coffee shop to use as my base and simply added a stamped shop name and open sign.

For some reason “you perk me up” reminded me of the coffee shop from the show Friends.

I then placed my lemon and blueberry heading into the meet for their date. Awww….

I know it’s silly, but that’s me.

If you try this recipe, let me know if you think it’s a true happily ever after for these two.

I do.

Happy~

This layout makes me extremely happy. That smile! Those little chubby arms and cheeks. It melts my heart. I would add that it warms my heart thinking of warm Spring Days and outfits, but it would appear we skipped Spring and went straight to Summer here!

While digging through pictures today I came across this picture and knew it would be perfect for the Circle Weekly Challenge to make a Spring project incorporating ric rac and a sticker. I pulled out my most recent Scarlet Lime kits and fell in love with the Pink Paislee She Art papers. The bright, happy colors along with the paper flowers and stickers were perfect for my picture.

And it just so happens yesterday while at Hobby Lobby I picked up a package of the Paper Studio Fibers in plans to use them in a layout based on Hartly’s capris. Yes, I was going to and still might do a layout based on pants! Crazy, I know. But, they are really cute.

Anyway, the ric rac matches everything!

My happy layout~

The title~

Cut from Simply Charmed at 5.53″ wide. I pop dotted it and added the dimensional bee sticker to the letter a.

My picture and it’s mat~

I cut the mat from Elegant Edges at 5 x 4.7″. After I made the cut I decided I wanted to include more of this wonderful paper, so I pop dotted the matted picture, inked the edges and used the whole length of the paper. I really like the effect.

I used~
Scarlet Lime kit contents: Pink Paislee She Art papers: Truth and Courage, American Craft Delight Sage Paper Flowers and Remarks Thyme Dimensional Stickers
Paper Studio Fibers, We R Memory Keepers floss, Martha Stewart inks, Kraft paper

I hope this makes you happy too!
